antibiotic resistance genes.associated with airborne PM emitted from beef cattle feed yards" said the authors who are researchers in environmental toxicology at Texas Tech University and at a testing lab in Lubbock Co-author Phil Smith told the Texas Tribune that the bacteria could be active for a long time and “could be traveling for long distances” His colleague molecular biologist Greg Mayer told the paper that some of the study’s findings “made me not want to breathe” Because antibodies are poorly absorbed by cows they are released into the environment through excretion Once in the environment bacteria will undergo natural selection and genes that have acquired natural immunities will survive The genes that have gone airborne are contained in dried fecal matter that has become dust and gets picked up by winds as they whip through the stockyards The Texas Tribune reported that representatives from the Texas cattle industry (estimated to control around 14 million beef cows) criticized the study saying it portrayed the airborne bacteria as overly hazardous to human health But the mass of PM25 particles (the kind that can be inhaled into lungs) released into the atmosphere is eye opening with the study estimating the total amount released by cattle yards in Colorado Kansas Nebraska Oklahoma and Texas exceeds 46000 lbs(21000 kg) per day Antibiotic-resistant bacterial DNA

us at [email protected] Sia dropped the new video for her song “Elastic Heart” on Wednesday and it’s even more bizarre than you might expect Just like the video for “Chandelier” this video stars Maddie Ziegler of Dance Moms in a signature Sia blonde bob wig Though “Chandelier” won millions of fans for Ziegler’s spellbinding interpretive dance moves some criticized the very emotional video for over-sexualizing 12-year-old Ziegler who dances in a nude leotard Well “Elastic Heart” is even more emotional and perhaps even more perverse In this video Sia has teamed up Ziegler with Shia LaBeouf no stranger to controversy A buff LaBeouf is wearing a nude leotard so small that at first glance the actor looks naked In the video LaBeouf 28 and Ziegler are trapped in a giant bird cage The two alternately fight and embrace one anotherat one point Ziegler bites LaBeouf’s hand and in another LaBeouf carries her around the cage Even though the nude leotards for the adult and child dancers are certain to be called into question fans of Sia are already commenting on the new video saying that it brought them to tears Write to Eliana Dockterman at [email protected] may not work against Godzilla but a new drug could protect people from deadly doses of radiation The compound already in clinical trials to treat a blood disorder may also make radiation therapy for cancer safer “What’s really exciting about this work is that not only have they found this countermeasure to mitigate radiation-induced [damage] but the fact that it works in a time window of 24 hours after exposure” says radiation oncologist David Kirsch of Duke University Medical Center in Durham North Carolina Radiation first strikes the bone marrow wiping out the production of blood cells important for fighting infections clotting and carrying oxygen throughout the body At high levels radiation fries the gastrointestinal tract damaging outer layers of the intestines and colon and causing fluid loss diarrhea vomiting and local infections which can become more systemic and lead to death The condition is known as radiation-induced gastrointestinal syndrome (RIGS) and there are currently no approved drugs to treat it Researchers had suspected that two proteins known as hypoxia-inducible factors 1 and 2 (HIF-1 and HIF-2) play a role in maintaining the integrity of the intestines during various times of stress To test whether they were linked to RIGS radiation oncologist Amato Giaccia of the Stanford University School of Medicine in California engineered mice to lack a family of proteins called PHDs that normally destabilize HIF-1 and HIF-2 Without the PHDs mice have higher-than-usual levels of the HIF proteins Whereas normal mice all died within 10 days of exposure to a high dose of radiation aimed at the abdomen 70% of mice lacking PHDs were still alive after 30 days “We were very surprised by the magnitude of the response” Giaccia says Next his team tried to replicate the results with a drug They turned to dimethyloxalylglycine (DMOG) a compound known to block the PHD proteins and already in clinical trials to treat chronic anemia Like mice lacking the PHDs animals that received a dose of DMOG—even 24 hours after radiation exposure—survived longer than usual Two-thirds of them were still alive 60 days after the exposure the team reports today in Science Translational Medicine DMOG didn’t alter the initial damage done to the gastrointestinal tract by radiation but it helped the gut recover Boosted levels of one HIF protein in particular HIF-2α the researchers showed were key to the recovery “What we’re accomplishing with DMOG is that we’re modifying the physiology of the normal tissue to give it time to repair and regenerate” Giaccia explains The new findings Kirsch says point toward an intervention that could be given in the 24 hours following a radiation emergency—such as the meltdown of nuclear reactors in Fukushima Japan in 2011—to save lives Giaccia would also like to find out if the findings can benefit cancer patients A drug like DMOG he says might ease the toxicity that accompanies radiation therapy Patients taking it might also tolerate higher doses of radiation applied more broadly throughout the body killing more cancer cells than current methods But Kirsch warns that it’s too soon to say whether DMOG or other PHD-blocking drugs can be used in cancer patients “There’s some literature suggesting that targeting the HIF pathway could actually protect tumors from radiation” he says which would be counterproductive “More studies need to be done to show that these compounds don’t affect tumor response”Scary science A cartoon on the Web site of China’s state news agency Xinhua Zhu Huiqing SHANGHAI CHINA—The cartoon that appeared last week on the Web site of the Chinese state news agency Xinhua was no laughing matter It depicted a scientist wearing a tie emblazoned with the American flag staring through a microscope while dropping unnaturally colored kernels of rice into a Chinese child’s mouth It ran with a story headlined "More shameful than the experiment are the lies" The illustration is part of a media firestorm now engulfing a 4-year-old study in which Chinese schoolchildren were given golden rice a genetically modified form of rice designed to boost vitamin A levels The results of that study published online early in August drew little attention until the activist group Greenpeace China on 29 August claimed the trial shouldn’t have gone forward and called it a "scandal of international proportions" Defenders of the trial including the US National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) which partly funded the research have countered that the scientists conducting the research got all the necessary legal and ethical permissions Greenpeace’s actions are "callous and cynical" says Adrian Dubock manager of the Golden Rice Project in Dornach Switzerland who was not involved in the study but has followed it closely Newspaper columnists in China have nonetheless responded by accusing the main authors both at Tufts University in Boston of using the kids as "guinea pigs"; some stories likened the study to Japanese bio-warfare experiments on Chinese prisoners in World War II The furor has prompted several Chinese scientists listed as co-authors on the published paper to distance themselves from the work and one co-author was suspended just this week by the China Center for Disease Control and Prevention (Chinese CDC) for "inconsistencies" in what he told the agency about the study Golden rice was created in the late 1990s as an attempt to help people worldwide suffering from vitamin A deficiency which is estimated to cause blindness in more than a quarter of a million children annually The rice variety produces β-carotene a precursor to vitamin A not naturally present in rice Greenpeace has long attacked the project as a waste of money and a PR ploy by the industry The study in China sought to find out how efficiently β-carotene in golden rice is converted to vitamin A once it’s ingested According to the published study which was conducted in 2008 the researchers fed 72 children either golden rice spinach or capsules with β-carotene in oil They reported that golden rice was as good a vitamin source as the capsules and better than spinach—a "fantastic result" Dubock says because it means modest amounts of rice will provide benefits But Greenpeace China claimed in a press release that the study had violated a Chinese government "decision to abort plans for the trial" As evidence the group cites a 2008 e-mail from an official in the Chinese agriculture ministry’s GMO Biological Safety Administration Office In 2009 after the study was already done NIDDK responded to another group’s criticism by noting the work was approved by ethical panels at Tufts and the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine that there were "many safeguards" to protect participants and that the US Department of State had cleared the trial after a review for "any potentially negative foreign policy implications" In the wake of the uproar the Chinese coauthors have denied involvement in the work On 5 September for example the state-run People’s Daily quoted Wang Yin of the Zhejiang Academy of Medical Sciences the fourth author on the paper as saying "I am unaware of that paper" Yet the Chinese CDC confirmed that the Chinese researchers including CDC’s Yin Shi’an collaborated with researchers at Tufts The agency however stated that they only gave the school children spinach and capsules; the golden rice part was a Tufts project of which Yin had been unaware a CDC statement suggested Nonetheless CDC suspended Yin for "inconsistencies" in his story Dubock says he has received information that the Chinese researchers had been "intimidated" by home visits from police "Of course they knew" that golden rice was being tested he says None of the Chinese scientists listed as co-authors could be reached for comment by Science Tufts University said it is "deeply concerned" by Greenpeace China’s allegation and is conducting a "thorough review" Pending the outcome an interview with the paper’s first author Guangwen Tang would be "not appropriate" a spokesperson says (Tang is a Chinese-born researcher at a Tufts nutrition lab sponsored by the US Department of Agriculture the other funder of the study) The paper’s last author renowned nutrition scientist Robert Russell was also unavailable for comment due to family circumstances "To our knowledge, according to reports.com.
